AIYOH! How la like that?
We have all heard the line before. Mostly from the lips of Opposition politicians. "IT'S GOING TO BE THE DIRTIEST ELECTION IN MALAYSIAN ISTORY". Perhaps it will be. Perhaps not. We shall see. But in the meantime things are already happening which serve to confuse the hell out of ordinary Malaysians hoping to vote for a better future for themselves and their children and grandchildren.
The feeling is:-
Barisan Nasional is going to town with hand-outs using our money.
Pakatan Rakyat have not got their act together.
Multi-cornered fights will hand the votes to Barisan Nasional.
......and so on and so forth.
As an ordinary Malaysian voter I am increasingly getting confused, frustrated and disappointed. With Barisan Nasional for sure. But increasingly I am thinking Pakatan Rakyat may not really be the answer either. So how?
I received a message this morning which brought the whole mess to a unbearable explosion. Here it is...
As a resident and voter, I'm dismayed at the prospects of having a 4-way fight in Bkt Gasing.
We voted in Simon's father in 2008, the late Edward Lee, who was under DAP. He was a good, selfless people's representative. After his passing, Simon, who was his father's personal assistant for 4 years, has risen up to take over the mantle. Truly, there's no one better who understand the people of Bukit Gasing and will fight for them with the same selfless passion.
However, DAP intends to field its own candidate, while a former councillor, Mak is also running independent. It doesn't take a genius to see that the only winner in this race will be BN. The anti-BN vote will be split 3 ways, and we really cannot afford that.
If you hv any connection with DAP, would you please ask them to consider backing Simon Lee for the ADUN seat. With DAP's ticket and the people's support, we can retain the Bukit Gasing seat under Pakatan Rakyat.
TQ for your time and consideration
As the writer said it doesn't take a genius to know that if DAP fields its own candidate to make it a 4-cornered fight it will be as good as handing the Bukit Gasing seat over to Barisan Nasional on a silver platter. Why do they want to do that? Why do they not support Simon Lee? What does this Mak hope to achieve by running as an independent?
This is just one case. I believe that throughout the country similiar situations are happening. Pakatan Rakyat tactic or Barisan Nasional strategy? Right now I just feel that I am going to be screwed again.
